Please don't. This is the kind of heavy-handed intervention that makes
users mad.

What you can do is create aliases with names like "default" and change
what they point at from release to release. Meaning that users who
accepted to use distro defaults will get the changes, and others won't
have their loved custom setup stepped on.

For example I used DNA wallpaper and it changed to balloons recently. I
could get mad - I didn't select "default wallpaper" in the list but "DNA
wallpaper", it shouldn't have changed at the whim of the Desktop team.
